Subtle Sage

Growing up, my mother meticulously tended to a tiny herb garden in our front yard. I loved jumping along the stepping stones and grabbing some fresh herbs for her to use while making dinner. Aside from having sweet memories of herbs though, I also love how herbs function as design elements. There’s nothing prettier than incorporating some pretty, delicate greenery into home decor.

Take 2 Tuesday: Fly Away With Me

Something about butterflies has always fascinated me. Maybe it’s because my name means “butterfly”, but I have always found them to be whimsical and stunningly colorful creatures. When I came across this Butterfly Green and Sky Blue Stationery for Kids, as designed by Cardstore.com artist delphine, I realized what a pretty note it would be for any little girl to write in. I know as I child I would have been more than proud to send this stationery out! Matched with this black and white photo of a vibrant blue butterfly done by Flickr photographer Eddy.H, it makes for a picture-perfect pair.

Feeling Blue

With this gorgeous summer weather, one can’t help but think of the beach and sailing through some warm summer wind. When I came across this Marine Blue stationery from Delphine, I was immediately transported to scenes of stunning blue water, crisp white clothes, and perfectly paired tan accents. All these images floating in my mind were just begging to be made into an Inspiration Board post, so of course I obliged! If you’re dreaming of an ocean escape, here are some ideas to make that dream a reality.

What’s In Your Bag?

Maybe it’s the nosy-nelly in me, but I’m always curious to see what people carry in their bags.  I feel a peek into someone’s purse is almost a window into their soul (or at least their daily routine).  So I was thrilled when I saw Delphine artist Erika Firm’s day bag profiled in today’s Designing Moms entry (click here to see what’s inside her bag).  Being ‘creative, cool’ Erika, the inside of her bag is as stylish and colorful as the outside, and it contains quite a few items that have just been added to my wish list (including her adorable Orla Liely wallet).  She had better be careful next time she visits the Cardstore.com office with that bag, as it might just magically walk off and find itself a new home!
